Allegheny Power's Pennsylvania customers now have the option to enroll in a new wind energy program. Customers will receive information and enrollment forms with their February bill.
The voluntary program provides any customer the option to pay an additional charge for the purchase of wind energy credits. These credits can be purchased in blocks of 100 kWh for $2.50 per block. The additional cost will support the operations and development of existing and future wind energy projects.
‘We're committed to environmental stewardship, and we realize our customers are interested in renewable energy,’ says Paul J. Evanson, chairman, president and CEO of Allegheny Energy.
In addition to supporting wind energy, a portion of the supplemental charge will benefit the West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund, which promotes clean energy technologies throughout the region.
